Similarly, by keeping wall hangings low the empty space at the top of the walls will help to make the ceiling look taller and therefore the room feels physically bigger or “airier”. Of course, you will also want to bear in mind where your windows are and work actively to not block them with furniture. Different shapes and sizes of living room all present their own challenges. Narrow living rooms and L-shaped living rooms can often feel tricky when structuring a furniture layout. In the layout diagrams above, each square room can be applied to different sizes and shapes of living room and act as more of a main furniture guide to the layout and not a conclusive layout that only works for small, square living rooms. But they should give you a basic idea of the simplest living room arrangements.
Vintage, retro-inspired, Scandi-chic, mid-century: whatever you want to call it, this decor style sits well with white. The warm tones of teak look great contrasted against white walls, as do the bright retro accessories so popular right now. You know what color never seems to go out of style? White. Vintage furniture and accents look fresh and contemporary against a bright interior here in this room from Home Polish. Minimal, does this one even need explaining? Modern architecture almost always defaults to white, and for good reason. White is the most reflective of all colors, bouncing light from big windows (a lucky feature of many new builds) all around, and showing off crisp corners to perfection.
Keep it sweet, opt for impact with a sugary shade – decorating with pastels needn't mean going entirely pale. Paint an accent wall in a darker colour, which will serve to balance the lighter tone on an adjacent wall. Use matt emulsion to create a fashionable low-sheen look – a velvety, almost chalky finish – ideal for uneven walls in the living area. Make it multi-coloured, a family space is the perfect place to go big on colour. Choose a low-slung modular sofa in a mix of pretty colours for flexible seating that will bring a sense of fun to a family room. Paint walls white to create a backdrop that makes the colours really pop. Keep other furniture minimal so the sofa takes pride of place. Stick to blue, create a fabulously fresh space with blue. Marry steely blues, from mineral to aqua shades, to devise a scheme you won't want to leave. Mimic a dado or picture rail in paint – and take it all around the room for added impact. Keep the feel classic with white or natural wood furniture or create a more exotic look by adding texture and pattern for that year-round holiday feel.
